Make a holiday apartment in Alta Ribagorza your home away from home

Holiday apartments in Alta Ribagorza are in a mountainous region in the Catalan Pyrenees with steep slopes, unspoiled woodland and lakes all waiting to be discovered. There’s also a rich culture to experience around holiday homes in Alta Ribagorza, including UNESCO sites, as well as a choice of state-of-the-art ski resorts in winter and all the adventure sports visitors can handle in summer. An Alta Ribagorza holiday home will be an appropriately rustic and comfortable hideaway, full of traditional character but equipped with the domestic appliances and functionality to accommodate the needs of modern holidaymakers.  

Things to do

-Heritage: There’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Alta Robagorza protecting the beautiful medieval Romanesque churches of the Vall de Boí. There are nine in total, all dating to the 12th century. Most spectacular is Sant Climent de Taüll, which has a bell-tower six storeys in height. All of the buildings contain historic elements including wood carvings and detailed medieval frescoes.  

-Winter sports: The main resort for Alta Ribagorza is Boí Taüll, which has 52 runs totalling 45 kilometres in length. The resort’s services, including shops and restaurants are set in Pla de les Vaques, which has nine lifts serving the slopes. To the east is Port Ainé and to the north is the large Baqueira-Beret. Away from the resorts there are plenty of locations for cross-country skiing across Alta Ribagorza.

-Summer sports: The woodland, steep slopes, scenic lookouts, rivers, waterfalls and lakes create a hiker’s paradise in summer. Alta Ribagorza has more than 20 designated walking trails, ranging from tough hikes over peaks to gentle riverside strolls. Mountain bikers are also well catered for; five major trails weave through this dazzling landscape.  

-Cuisine: The mountain cuisine of Alta Ribagorza has been passed down through many generations. In a part of Spain that is covered with snow for several months of the year, the food is rich, warming and filling. A classic dish here is mushroom and rabbit stew. The quality of wild mushrooms here is a source of pride, and a number of local fairs and other events coincide with their annual harvest in October.  

-Excursions: France isn’t far from the northernmost point of Alta Ribagorza. The first town across the border is Bagnères-de-Luchon, a quaint spa settlement with beautiful 19th-century mansions. On the Spanish side of the border is Vielha, a handsome resort on the banks of the Garona River. With a little patience it’s also possible to journey into the Parc Nacional d'Aigüestortes, just east of Alta Ribagorza and loved for its shimmering lakes and opportunities for spotting wildlife.

Weather in Alta Ribagorza

Up in the Pyrnees, Alta Ribagorza holiday apartments are in a region that experiences cold winters and pleasantly warm summers. Thanks to the large differences in exposure and elevation between peaks and valleys here, weather conditions vary from town to town. Snowfall is common throughout the region between December and March, but the highest peaks have snow as early as October. Summers bring highs in the mid-20s, with occasional rainfall and lows that get down to about 10°C at night.

Travel to Alta Ribagorza

The most convenient airport for holiday accommodation in Alta Ribagorza is Lleida (ILD), which is just under two hours south of the area. It’s a relatively small airport, with a few connections to the UK. The drive is wonderfully scenic, following the N-230 as it meanders up ever steeper mountainsides. Alternative airports include Barcelona (BCN), Tarbes-Lourdes (LDE) and Pau (PUF), all between two and three hours away. Barcelona in particular has many more links to the UK.

Por lo que la localización es perfecta. Salón con cocina americana muy amplio. Sofá muy cómodo con una televisión enorme para pasar buenas tardes de apreski viendo alguna película. En las habitaciones las camas eran super cómodas y los armarios estaban muy bien. En general un apartamento bonito, práctico, acogedor y cómodo. Una muy buena opción.
